"Amen", says the Pope  
According to "accounts" the Pope's last word was "amen".

But, hang on, wasn't this the guy who couldn't talk a couple of days ago before his health deteriorated?

It's a miracle!

Quick, appoint a new Pope, so JP2 can be declared a saint.

He could be the patron saint of AIDS.

Well, they need at least three miracles to declare him a saint, so maybe they're groping for them.....

Well, it's only a matter of time before he starts appearing in people's grilled-cheese sandwiches, and posthumous miracles count.

Good point. Although I see him appearing more in a bowl of porridge than on a toasted cheese sandwich somehow....

Does that count as a miracle? Hmmm... Maybe if his last words were something like: "Ah! Now I see that a uterus and a brain are not the same thing! Hallelujah!" Or maybe something as simple as "So long and sorry about all the misunderstanding".

That would qualify as a miracle.

On another note. Did anyone watch the special on the ABC last night? With the JP2 comic books? and collector cards? I had those!!

Or perhaps, "How silly of me! The best way to prevent abortions is to allow people to use contraception!"

He could be the patron saint of AIDS.

Based on his career, he should be the patron saint of publicity and advertising. It'd make a nice complement to all those guys in the Vat who seem to be competing to be patron saint of money laundering.

I was going to write about how annoyed I was that the secular media was so keen to lick the Pope's arse, but then I realised it was naive to think that there is such a thing as the secular media.
